  1. CATC SHAPE Award Plan
    Jim Holland, CATC Director and Phil Dow, Auto Body Instructor, gave an overview of the SHAPE Award Plan (Safety & Health Award for Public Employers).   Mr. Dow has been working on this plan for two years.  The SHAPE Award is for public employers and it recognizes workplace safety.  It’s through the Department of Labor and free.  It’s a voluntary program designed to maintain a safe work environment for employees and students.  CATC wanted to become involved to have a self-sustaining safety plan in the building.  The goal is to lower work injury and illness rates below the State average.  The program provides free information and training and helps us become OSHA compliant.
    Motion by Jennifer Day to move the SHAPE Award Plan to the Board for approval, second by Jennifer Neumeyer, so moved 3-0.
  2. New Art Class at Cony with dual enrollment with UMA
